[texts]The Schema Axiom as Foundation of a Theory for Measurement and Rrepresentation of Consciousness - Bernhard Bierschenk
For the first time in the history of psychological and educational measurement the Kantian schema has been applied to natural language expression in a rigorous and precise way. The crucial novelty of the approach concerns the way in which the Kantian schema interrelates the analytic with the synthetic mode in the construction of the presented formalism. The main thesis advanced is based on the premise that the synthetic in contrast to the analytic proposition plays the central role in the measur...

[texts]An ecological model for the processing of symbolic information - Bernhard Bierschenk
This article attempts to prove that an adequate cognition oriented approach to the processing of symbolic information abstracted from verbal expressions must consider a running text instead of scattered sentences. It is argued that the dominant cognition models do not give due consideration to the fact that a valid abstraction of in-formation structures has to be based on an explicit encoding of intentionality and valuation...

[texts]Conceptions of Cognitive Functions in a Science of Knowing - Bernhard Bierschenk
This article presents a critical discussion of the use of the notion "frame", especially by computer scientists, as a theoretical construct to describe the cognitive representation of information. It is argued that an adequate description of "knowledge" requires the utilization of the notion "schema" as the theoretical construct. Based on this discussion, the construction of abstract cognitive models is proposed...

[texts]Geometric Foundation and Quantification of the Flow in a Verbal Expression - Bernhard Bierschenk
This article presents the geometric foundation and quantification of the Agent-action-Objective (AaO) kinematics. The meaningfulness of studying the flows in verbal expressions through splitting and splicing the strings in a verbal flow relates to the fact that free parameters are not needed, since it is not required that the presented methodological development fits one or the other empirical context...

[texts]The Sensing of Competence: Architecture and Functioning of a Plotting Device - Bernhard Bierschenk
Stimulated by the general philosophical idea oflogical positivism Edgar A. Singer, early in the 1920s made the radical suggestion that behaviour does not have mentalcauses. His thesis, further developed and modified by Arturo Rosenblueth, Norbert Wiener and Julian Bigelow in the early 1940s, has come to be termed behaviouralteleology. The principal motivation for Gerd Sommerhoff was in the beginnings of the 1950s to disjoin the behavioural approach from all notions of mind, mental statesand ment...

[texts]The Angle of Articulation in Textual Movement - Bernhard Bierschenk
Natural systems are self-organising and stratify according to the angular articulation of their movements. In particular, movement is relative to the levels that define its behaviour space. As natural phenomenon, text production is self-referential. In generating information, the intention of the producer of a text becomes specified. Specifying of intention is dependent on phase and phase transitions...

[texts]The Topological Scaling of Consciousness: The World in the Perspective of Economists and Technologists - Bernhard Bierschenk
The article presents an analysis in which intentionality is the key concept in the measurement and representation of consciousness. It is shown that a psychological approach based on the animal mechanism out of which behavioural semantics has developed is wrong. By studying the local and global singularities it was possible to show that efficient transaction with the environment rests on the theoretical formulations that assume the cooperative interaction of a conscious organism with the environ...

[texts]Differentiated Limits for Knowability - Bernhard Bierschenk
The article is based on the string-hypothesis, which has important scientific consequences. Science has meant to associate the notion of number with the strict operation of counting. However, recent account of string-theoretical approaches is sharply distinguishing number from magnitude. In studying spinning strings in the context of language, it is shown that rotation is a valid concept. For the descrip­tion of rotating strings, super strings and super symmetries, fitness values are produced d...

[texts]The Observer as Categoriser - Bernhard Bierschenk
This article concerns the rotation-translation hypothesis. Oscillations in pattern dynamics are shown to produce perspective transformations of motifs and themes. At the kinematic level, this condition has made it possible to extract different perspective orientations. As a result, it is shown that motifs carry intentional cues and locate structurally the observerâs thematic orientation. Since the original text and its translation share highly similar informational invariants, their attractor s...

[texts]The Tacitness of Tacitus - Bernhard Bierschenk
In the present study, emphasis is put on two kinds of measurement. One concerns the analysis of verbal flows by means of Volume-Elasticity measures. The other is directed toward the analysis of information flow structures and their representation in the form of a Metaphysical Cube. Because information transaction cannot be studied without an emphasis on the text producer's text building behaviour, his intended and oriented schematising as unitising activity has been focused upon...

[texts]An Experimental Approach to the Functional Analysis of Text Building Behaviour: Part I. The Verbal Flow - Bernhard Bierschenk
This presentation is based on a method for analysing the verbal flow in text building behaviour. This method is called Perspective Text Analysis (PTA). It locates and makes use of the discontinuities in produced text. Its task is to characterise the mechanism that governs language production and to foster an understanding of the actual processes of movement in language. The study of this phenomenon is founded on the experimental conditions provided by the famous Visual Cliff...

[texts]The Ecological Approach to Diagnosis of Service Information Behaviour - Bernhard Bierschenk
This paper presents a new approach to analysing verbal behaviour. Underlying this approach is a subject-governed model, which means that a text producer (agent) is the reference point in coding. The study through which the method is exemplified originates from a survey of mechanics carried out by a Swedish multinational machine industry. The results illustrate how workers in various cultural contexts value information of relevance to their job performance...

Consciousness, in the beginning of its scientific use, was considered to be material, i.e., to represent an attribute of substance or matter. During later periods, it was associated with learning processes. Based on questionnaires and interviews, a number of different definitions have made its learned content dependent on statistical measures of what people consciously know. However, statically and without a proper time-scale, it is impossible to identify causal links to the biological mechanism...

This article is based on the Agent-action-Objective AaO-axiom and assumes that intention can be discovered and made evident. But this requirement can be satisfied only under the condition that a particular individual can be identified with his style of writing. This implies that the nature of writing becomes approachable.
